***In the world of SEO, every point matters. It doesn't matter what kind of technique you use to get from one page to another, for example, if your site is targetting the keyword "shelving units" Google wants to know what page 1 was before they saw page 2 .

 

Let's take the following hypothetical situation:

 

Page A - Shelving units 101 | How to choose a shelf unit Page B - Metal shelves allow you to create bigger storage solutions than wood shelving units. Page C - Buy metal shelving units online in Australia. Page D - I need something that will fit under my stairs. How much would 4 wire & 6 wire shelving units cost?

 

# Something like this? We hope not.

 

If someone is searching for "wire shelving units", Google would like to know which search brought them to page C , since even if they're not near stairs, it's still relevant information. Now, instead of linking A -> B, then B -> C; if you make your anchor text reflect the topic you are talking about (in this case " I need something that will fit under my stairs." ) you can link D directly to C . An added bonus is that your keyword stuffing is now more spread out and less easy-to-spot by prying eyes. All search engine related activity decreases as time goes on, so the longer it takes someone to find what they're looking forand hence, switch off) the better for you.
